Hidden Valley is run by winemaker and aerosol gas magnate Dave Hidden. Situated on the side of the Helderberg Mountain in the heart of Stellenbosch, the new winery is a neighbour of the Ernie Els estate. As well as the premium Hidden Valley a lower-priced range, Hidden Agenda, will be offered, initially consisting of a Chenin/Viognier and a Shiraz.

Lands End estate is based in Cape Agulhas at the cool, southern tip of Africa. Recently bought by Dave Hidden of Hidden Valley, Lands End Estate will provide a stand-alone label, initially consisting of just a Sauvignon Blanc.

Pulpit Rock, situated in Riebeek West is a new producer. The wines will reach the UK in September.
